raise taxes is really hard. to do it you have to embrace some really ugly policies, so to understand the trap, what they're about to tell the american people they're going to do you need to quickly understand what is in ryan's original budget. he didn't balance until 2038. so i made a graph for you. i want to be clear away they are. they're the numbers that paul ryan himself gave the congressional budget office. they are his own vision of his plan. they're what happens if everything goes exactly how he wants it to. and so what you're seeing here is the definition between paul ryan's most recent budget and the law as it is currently read. and it is two different things, ten years from now. this gives you a very clear idea up until now of what ryan has been cutting. first, people tend to think that ryan's budget is about medicare. but that is not where he gets savings, at least in the first ten years. it is only about half of gdp, or 10% of his cuts. then, he doesn't touch medicare at all. then there is this category of health care, which is mostly health care for poor people, medicaid

over the next two years, because we have over a trillion in the bank through spending cuts and tax increases. that 1.2 trillion is not that heavy a lift with a functional congress. but we can't get there if we're playing around with this crazy legislation, that you yourself are not going to vote for. >> remember when you got the house back from nancy pelosi, first thing you did was go out there on the floor and read the constitution. and the new rule was going to be every piece of legislation comes with a constitutional explanation -- and now, here you are in straight violation of the 27th amendment. >> you give me the choice of which side to argue before a court i'm arguing that this is unconstitutional. >> it sounds like complete disarray up there. boehner and cantor, going forward, as far as you can tell you don't know. boehner wouldn't say if he has the votes, democrats are not sure. what should we do? should we vote for it so it gives us breathing room or continue with this chaos? isn't it chaos? >> well, there is always a degree of uncertainty -- i have been elected in office

, who will under no circumstances raise taxes or include spending on anything, except of course, when they increase spending on things that they like. crazy wayne quoted only one person to support his defense of absolutism. a supreme court justice. no, not anton scalia, the most conservative member of the court, because justice scalia disagrees with lapierre on the second amendment. he does not believe that the right to bear arms is absolute. >> what limitations on the right to keep and bear arms are permissible. some are, because there were some that were acknowledged at the time. >> no, there is nothing any current member of the supreme court has said that could help crazy wayne make his case last night. and so he reached all the way back to a supreme court justice who died 41 years ago, and was a liberal member of the supreme court, who if he were alive today would be a solid vote for gun control on the supreme court. >> don't take it from me, take it from former democratic u.s. senator, and u.s. supreme court justice hugo black. 50 years ago, after he had been appointed to the uni
